“Well worth the wait!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

I've been promising myself a visit to Blairs for ages because of all the good things I've been hearing.
We arrived to be greeted by Duncan and Richie,had a drink at the bar then shown to our seat.
I had mussels in white wine sauce and my wife had a Goats cheese parcel with a beetroot sauce which were stunning.
For mains I had a 12oz Ribeye cooked to perfection with veg,wedges and pepper sauce while my wife had Chicken Supreme on a chorizo mash,both were exquisite. The desserts of Apple pie and Choc brownie were huge!
Service is great,very homely,no rushing with the staff always passing checking that all is ok.
At €78 for two 3 course meals of such magnitude it's a must stop on anyone who likes good foods list of restaurants!!
Will be back as soon as possible!

“Excellent stop when kissing the Blarney Stone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Blairs has always been a favorite. It is a wonderful pub resturant with the fires lite and snug, too. Portions are big so consider sharing. It is family run and you feel the Irish welcome. It isn't far from the Blarney Stone, but need to get directions as it is one of the best kept Irish secrets! No tourist buses here!

“Quite the surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Blair's Inn was recommended to us by our hosts at Westwood Country House, Fergus and Eucharia, and I can honestly say I was in no way expecting what we found.

The place is SO very warm and cozy with fireplaces in each room. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The food, though, was seriously five-star. My husband is a chef and we both had more than one or two moments where we exchanged glances with each other over how amazing the food was. Definitely not just pub grub!

This is a dining adventure we were happy to stumble upon. Should not be missed if you're visiting Blarney, or having a day trip to the castle!
